Title
Financing the Statewide Plan: A Guidebook
This guidebook is designed to answer questions such as: why should state departments of transportation develop a thorough financial planning process as part of their long-range plans? What should they contain? What strategies are there to bridge the ubiquitous gap between projected revenues and perceived needs? What are the pitfalls and success factors planners developing statewide, multimodal, long-range transportation plans should consider? State requirements for a financial component of the long-range planning process have been much less stringent than those for Metropolitan Planning Organizations.
